Hi Just about to purchase my first recording interface and was comparing: Focusrite Saffire: ultra-low latency FireWire 400 interface with on-board DSP, 4x inputs (2x Focusrite pre-amps and 2-channel S/PDIF), 10x outputs (8x balanced analog and 2-channel S/PDIF), 2x headphone outputs. 24bit/192kHz A-D/D-A converter, MIDI I/O, Saffire DSP powered plug-ins (compression, amp-modelling and reverb etc). Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 FireWire audio interface, (24bit/96kHz), total I/O count of 16x inputs (including internal loopback) and 8x outputs, new FireWire chipset/DSP hardware, 2x mic preamps, 4x analog inputs (2x combo mic/line/inst & 2x line inputs), ADAT input (optical), 1x S/PDIF I/O (coaxial), headphone output, MIDI in/out, 1x FireWire connection, switchable 48V phantom power, LED meter, Saffire Mix Control zero-latency DSP mixer/router. (info and comparison chart @ Thomann.de -(Dead Link Removed) This is for a small recording setup, acoustic wind/string instruments primarily. Running on 2.66GHz quadcore, 4Gb RAM with Windows XP or Vista. I really can't find any advice on which of these to get. From what I can see Pros: Saffire - onboard DSP, max sample rate 192kHz Pro 24 - More inputs, ADAT input I would really appreciate any advice on this as this is my first interface and so I have no knowledge on what i might regret not having in a few months. There is also an onboard DSP version of Pro 24 which is included in the comparison chart link. I would prefer to not incur the extra cost though as I'm buying Reason & Record at the same time so need to mind the money Alternatively, if anyone has a recommendation for an interface (preferably FireWire) for less than €300 (~$425), I'd be happy to listen!
